Groundhog Day

The other day Sky was barking. Nothing unusual...she always barks. But this time she wouldn't stop. So finally I went to take a look and find out what she was barking at.

There was something under the air conditioner. I told Cassidy to put both dogs in the basement so we could find out what it was.

It turned out to be a groundhog.

Cassidy got a stick and tried to poke it out. But it would have none of that. The thing kept growling at her.

She kept poking but he wasn't budging. She decided maybe a shovel would do better. And sure enough he popped his head out.

He took off but didn't go toward the trees.

Instead, he decided to go under the four wheeler.

We knew we couldn't let the dogs out until he was safe in the trees so now we needed to coax him out from under the four wheeler. By the way, the whole time Naomi thinks this is wonderful.

Cassidy tries throwing rocks at him and finally he makes a mad dash for the trees.

Bye bye Mr. Groundhog. I'm glad you'll live to see another day.

When we let the dogs out they ran back to the air conditioner to look for him.

"He's gotta be here somewhere!!"

"Move over, let me look."

"Nope, I don't see him."

"We took care of him!!! He won't be back!"
